    Well you have a major price range there lol...from a $500 Shocker to a $145 K. The Shocker is a serious sub, mostly SPL oriented. What do you want to achieve? SQ/SPL, SQ, SPL?

    - Steve

    PS: All three are good subs

    The Shockers will tear your head off, the Alpine will get loud(I used to run 4) but will still sound pretty good, and I have yet to hear the K's, but from what I gather - they get loud and sound good as well.

    yeah, i was really thinking about getting 2 12" Shocker III's, but i can't find a good amp to use with it, got any idea's? and if the X-Treme is that cheap, i might just go with 2 of those, but then again, i can't find a good amp for those other than 2 JBL 1200.1's, any idea's for 2 E-Treme's?

    yo, he's lying about getting as many as you need unless he has them in stock, super extreme subs have been discontinued!!

    get the 15, tune it low and it will get loud with SQ, ppl always say shockers have no SQ, what a lie
    if u need a box email me lol


    Moscow, how about audiobahn 1500HCX's, 2000 watts each, email me for more info

    oh yeah and I have a buddy who has 4 super 15's that i am selling for 250 per sub shipped dual 2 ohm coils

    oh man, that *****, i'd love to buy 2 of them, but i have a mustang, and i can barely fit 2 12's in there, i don't know if i'm going to fit 2 15's unless i take out the back bench, and i don't wanna do that, yet. i mean, unless you wanna help build a box, and then i guarantee you that it's not going to be one big box, more like a configuration of separate smaller boxes, but whatever. it can only be 34" wide, and can't be something like 15"x15" for the other dimensions otherwise it hits the hatch. but i'm sure i could work around it

    yeah, i found it at etronics.com for $399.99. oh, and all the retailers by me sell most of their stuff at msrp, and so the 81000D is around $900 if i buy it from them. ok, so i have 2 major questions that will decide what i get. (1) what's a good amp to run 2 12" Shocker III's off of, and (2) can 2 12" K-Series handle an MTX 81000D? thanks a lot.
